Nikki Haley met with Miami Mayor Francis Suarez yesterday, Politico reports.
“The sitdown was arranged with the explicit goal of allowing Haley to gauge the 43-year-old Republican as a potential running mate in 2024.”
“Suarez, a rising star in Florida politics, is Cuban American and an influential voice with the largest bloc of conservative Hispanic voters in the battleground state. Along with voters with roots in Venezuela, Nicaragua and Colombia, Cuban Americans shifted hard right during the Trump era as Democrats struggled with the embrace of ‘socialism’ by the left wing of their party.”
“Another source told us that while a joint ticket wasn’t explicitly discussed, it hung over the entire conversation.”Save to Favorites
